Room was good. 5 of us in an apartment. Old building and quite difficult to locate at first because it's a hotel within a building shared with others (offices, bank,etc). But it is walking distance to a lot of food spots. Parking is a hassle as well because of the bank but on weekends it's quite okay. Other amenities are...

First, the location is just splendid. It's just a walk away from food courts, bistros , bars , malls and just about everything else. Believe me, that is a boon considering this hotel does not have an in house restaurant. Also, the riverside is barely 10 minutes walk away. The hotel is on the 4th floor above offices. No concierge...

I had read a couple of reviews before leaving and was somewhat apprehensive. The hotel begins on the 4th floor as the lower floors are for offices.

I stayed here for one night in early October based on the recommendation of a colleague. He based his recommendation on the price range that I was willing to pay. The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's located just nearby my Kuching office and the popular seafood centre, Topspot is just behind this hotel. It is located...

We stayed here in August 2016, as a base for visiting some of the wildlife attractions. To be fair, the place was cheap. It was also clean, had air conditioning, decent views from higher floors, a nice roof-top pool and was well located. Downside is it is old and quite shabby, although the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is...
